Changing the Yosemite system font to San Franscisco


Using instructions found on Github, I successfully changed the system font on my Mac from Yosemite’s default Helvetica Neue to San Francisco, Apple’s newly designed font for the upcoming iWatch.

While I won’t be getting an iWatch because I don’t need a computer actually strapped to my body, I do think the font that it uses is quite nifty: a clean, adaptive sans serif  that, for some treason I haven’t quite figured out yet, is a lot easier on the eyes than Helvetica Neue.

What can I say? It feels like a brand new machine!
